Hello all! It’s a wet weekend, perfect weather to settle down and finish your current Jolly Red tapestry. Click on the links below to see our fabric selections, to help you choose colours and fabric you’d like if you’ll be sending your tapestry to us for making up.

Our cotton fabric is a popular option for a fresh summer look to your tapestry. Click here to see our current cotton ranges from creams and yellows through to pastel shades, brights and on to greys and black – and some lovely dotty options too.

We also have some good options in our woolly range, though sadly not as many colours as we would like to have. Many shades have been discontinued and haven’t been replaced with similar colours…somehow it’s usually the shades that look good with our kits that are the first to disappear!

Our third fabric range is our cotton velvet. You can choose either velvet or cotton fabric for the edging, hanging loop and backing of your Christmas stocking which we make up with a contrast cotton lining.

Incidentally, now’s a great time to start a Christmas stocking as our deadline making up date this year is likely to be early October.

More help needed? Samples? Call us on 01460 281111 if you need more help or advice on choosing colours. We are happy to send fabric samples out to a UK address, so email kelly@jollyred.co.uk if you’d like to receive some. If you can let us know which tapestry you have finished, and give us an idea of the colours and fabric you’d like that is a good start – remember to include your address!

Take a look here for our current prices. We can send you a booking form if you need one.

Once you’re ready to post your tapestry, use a ‘signed for’ method of posting and send it to us at:

There’s no need to buy a smart tube from the post office, as your canvas can be folded. The boxes that our kits are sent out in are ideal, or re-use something that you already have in the house. We are keen recyclers, and enjoy seeing a variety of parcels turning up each day! As long as our address is clear and the parcel is well wrapped/taped you’ll be fine. Please also write your name and address on the reverse if you can.
